"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it." - C.S. Lewis

A new project in the works

First off I'm going to admit that I believed the Google article that said they changed their name to Topeka.  (Yes, I clicked on the name, yes, I read the article, yes, I was incredulous...yes, I believed it.  How embarrassing.)  *phew*  Glad that's out of the way... (I didn't realize it was April 1st, all right?  Geez.)

Okay, now I have to announce a project I've started work on - I'm doing a novella based on the theme of one of the dances my class is doing.  I haven't started wrtiting yet, but I'm gathering ideas in a notebook and outlining a little (if you can believe it, I've never outlined anything in my life, but I have this sneaking feeling that it's going to help me tremendously).  I really can't wait to get started - the main theme is about sacrifice, and it's going to have parts set during a few different times in history (it may sound cheesy, but yes, the main character *does* time travel - it's just different than you're imagining, I expect).  The only trouble I am currently having is pinpointing the identity of the MC.  I know it's going to be a girl, and I think I might base her off of Rachel Scott of Columbine (or someone like her) but I'm not quite sure yet.

Anyway, so far I'm excited about it, and I'll expect it to be probably about 15,000 words when finished, perhaps less.  I'll keep you updated - please pray for me, if you can!  I know I can't do this by myself, and I need all the help I can get.

Oh yes, and - I just got a haircut!  Now my hair is a grand total of two inches long!!  I LOVE IT!

jk....(you weren't fooled, were you?)
